Two 3-liter bottles Francis Coppola Director's Cut 2012 Zinfandel
This year’s Zinfandel was sourced from a broad range of vineyards we like for their expressive character. We also added a touch of Petite Sirah to the blend this year for added weight. We age our Zinfandel in a combination of French and American oak barrels to accentuate the wine’s spice characteristics. Our 2012 Director’s Zinfandel offers good depth, a velvety texture, a range of red and black fruit flavors, exotic spice notes, a hint of pepper, and a long fragrant finish. Scents of boysenberries, currants and allspice are followed by luscious layers of cherries, plums, and vanilla toasted oak. A delicious pairing for grilled lamb chops, barbecued spare ribs, or macaroni and cheese.
